    Does it restart or just shutdown and stay off?

    How to turn off Automatically Restart

    Click Start then right click My Computer choose Properties
    Then Advanced tab
    Under Startup & Recovery click Settings
    Under System failure uncheck Automatically Restart
    Click OK.

    Now the Error message should stay up so you can read it.

    Ya, this happens many times with heat issues.
    Did you happen to overclock anything?
    If yes, then while playing a game that is CPU intensive your (stock) fan
    may not be able to keep it cool enough. Same goes for video card.
    If not then check for any recent changes that you have made and if
    you find any major ones you might want to try a system restore and then try your game again.

    Oh my god man.
    That is way too high.
    Right now do not run anything big.
    Your computer should be at like maybe 60c under full load.
    But I would say less to be safer.
    It sounds like you fan is breaking or the heatsinks are working correctly.
    Do you hear you fan running?
